If there was ever the ultimate chefs’ dish, this has to be it. Give me a bowl of beef ribs, a pile of chips and two hours of Coronation Street, and I’m a happy man! There’s something almost primeval about gnawing the meat off the bones, and using beef ribs instead of pork means you get so much more to eat. They may look large when raw, but after simmering they reduce a lot in size.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 onion
1 carrot
1.5kg beef fore ribs, cut into separate ribs
6 black peppercorns
3 bay leaves
1 small bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley

Sticky chilli sauce:

Quantity Ingredient
1 red chilli
200ml tomato ketchup
150ml chilli sauce
110ml dark soy sauce
175g honey
6 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
5 tablespoons bourbon whiskey

Method

  1. Roughly chop the onion and carrot. Place the beef ribs, peppercorns, bay leaves, parsley, onion and carrot into a large pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. When it comes to the boil, reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook very gently for 1½ hours, until very tender. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Finely chop the chilli. Place the tomato ketchup, chilli, soy sauce, chilli sauce, honey, teriyaki sauce and bourbon in a pan, stir well and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 3–4 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  3. When the ribs have cooled, remove them from the liquid and dip them into the sticky chilli sauce or brush them generously with it, then place them in a roasting tin, reserving the remaining sauce. Roast for 10–12 minutes, then remove from the oven and spoon over more of the chilli sauce. Continue to roast for a further 10–12 minutes, then remove from the oven and serve with freshly cooked chips.
